PROS: it was very cheap located right down town. The room was large & beds were average. The desk personnel were very friendly and nice. Room out dated but clean no complaints. CONS: I was not told that on site parking was extremely limited. I had to park behind hotel in a municipal parking garage. Continental breakfast was just ok.

Hi Terry, We work on the friendly and the clean while offering a reasonable rate. Especially for our stellar location! Our personal parking lot in front does not serve all of our guests. As with any downtown city lodging property, parking is usually dependent on ancillary lots. We are 'sandwiched' by our lot and the free municipal garage directly behind...

location is right on Broadway and cannot be beat! shower temp and water pressure a little sketchy. Price for the location cannot be touched! Also very good to have parking included in the rate as well. Front office staff very friendly and informative.

We came in late, Dan was the man! Very helpful, and great personality for the front desk. Thank you for giving us a great stay, we love this place and will be returning if ever in the area. Though being outdated, our room was very clean! The location is what makes this place a gem, walking distance to everything.

We have now stayed here three times, as a stopover between NY and Montreal... Always clean, friendly, great price for an overnight + light breakfast starting at 5 am before getting back on the road. Never used the pool, but it looks clean too.

We really enjoyed the friendly atmosphere along with the very comfortable room, windows you can open, and good beds. The indoor pool is a real treat, too. Parking on-site is a great bonus, given that Saratoga Springs can get crowded with cars sometimes. So it is a perfect location from which to enjoy the city. Not a fancy place, but...

The staff was helpful and friendly, the rooms were comfortable and clean. You can't beat the location! My only complaint would be that our room had no ventilation or AC so it got very hot and stuffy. My friends and I had a great time and will be retuning!

its right downtown! they loved our dog! you could walk everywhere, you don't have to move your car and they have a large parking lot. The price was way cheaper than the chain motels. It has the retro feel.

Excellent service. Service staff members are superior. Still being renovated for over six months. No light switch when entering room. Other minor issues. Outstanding location. Great food recommendations. Parking is a problem.

We stayed here a couple of times on our way to NYC from Montreal. Rooms are clean, and the location is perfect; close to shops, cafes, restaurants and bars. It's nice to be able to walk to your hotel after a night out. On the other hand, there's nothing to write home about the place but we just use the...

This is the second time we've stayed at the Saratoga Downtowner, and we'll be returning in the fall (and many times after that). You can't beat the location. The motel is right in the middle of all the downtown action - restaurants, bookstores, gift shops, breweries, a movie theater. The staff is lovely, and they offer a nice selection of...
